Edwin Ruud (9 June 1854 – 9 December 1932) was a Norwegian mechanical engineer and inventor who migrated to the United States where he designed, sold, and popularized the tankless-water heater. Mr. Ruud was the founder and President of Ruud Manufacturing Company, now a division of Rheem Manufacturing Company. The picture that you see below is from a very old Ruud water heater that probably been in service for at least 100 years! Yes, no kidding; these units were built to outlast a human life. But of course, there's no financial gain for a water heater company if they would keep building units that will outlast our very lives. Today water heater manufacturers build their residential tank type water heaters, to last the minimum time allowed which is 6 years or less. This means that by the time you payoff a 30 year mortgage, you would have replaced at least 5 tank type water heaters at a total cost of $10K. IS THERE A SOLUTION TO THIS LONG TERM PROBLEM?
YES, THE SOLUTION IS TO INSTALL A NORITZ TANKLESS WATER HEATER UNIT!
The reason why Noritz is my brand of choice is because this Japanese company is the leader when it comes to tankless technology, and because they are genuinely putting the consumer before their own financial gains; by creating their new tankless water units with a lifespan of up to 30 years if the proper maintenance is performed. This clearly shows that Noritz has a different mindset, when it comes to creating new products that aren't designed to drain your wallet. So, if you want to save your hard earned money, and at the same time have a State of the Art tankless water heater unit in your home; then let BestPriceWaterHeaters.com install a Noritz unit which will always perform like a PRO. I'll just close by writing the benefits of having a State of the Art Noritz tankless unit below.
NOTE: If you're not ready for a tankless unit, you can still add more life to your standard tank water heater, by installing a quality water softener to the water system in your home, and by flushing the tank at least twice a year. A secret that most homeowners don't know is that by just replacing the Anode rod that's inside of their tank type water heater, they can extend the life of the unit by 3 to 5 more years! Why? Because the Anode rod is made of magnesium which attracts the minerals in the water. The Anode rod is what extends the life of the tank, so by replacing the rod, flushing the tank at least twice a year, and also by installing a good quality water softener to the water system; you'll be adding few extra years of life to your water heater tank, and at the same time you'll save $$$$$.
NOTE: Another secret that you need to know, is that if the incoming water PSI is above 80; your WH warranty becomes automatically void. Also a higher than normal water PSI will create havoc across the plumbing system!. Learn all about how to protect your plumbing system on my PSI Blog!
